    Default How early was your bub?

    My DD was born at 37+1 only 3 weeks early but was 2.4kg. We had to stay in for 4days. She had trouble with her sugars for couple of days & sucking but didn't have to go into SCU. She is now 3months old & not growing as well as babies her age & we are going thru a couple of bumps now but she is a fighter & all babies are different.

    Gold Coast mumma how horrific what that nurse missed! Well, several nurses! Did you take it any further with the hospital? A repeat stay in the NICU is my worst fear, I really admire you for wanting to go back for another child after two very tiny bubs. Me and my dh are planning another for end of next year, and all I want is to be big and fat and 36+ weeks pregnant!

    Hi to you Gold coast mumma ~ welcome!

    They had a dodgy way of checking the feeding tube was in at the SCN we moved to, which involved measuring the exposed tube instead of acid testing, which they did in the NICU to make sure the tube is in the stomach, not the lungs. They told me everyone measured it differently, which kind of defeated the purpose.

    Gold coast mumma ~ sorry to hear that happened to your bub; I hope his lungs improve as he gets older.

    I was just looking at pics of my boy when he was in the nursery.
    Here he is compared to my finger:
    IMG_0332 (512x384).jpg

    And after his first bath (16 days after birth ~ pee-yew, he was on the nose!), minutes before he pulled out his feeding tube, and against everyones expectations, it never went back in.

    And here is a mini-bub BF pic:

    CIMG8279 (1024x768).jpg

    I was SO lucky he had a suck and swallow reflex at birth due to all the steroids, and again, despite being told he wouldn't feed. He took to it like a trooper and shut them up very quickly. Was fed by NGT when too tired to nurse. Oh the *memoriesssss*. Am so lucky to have only happy memories of it all after the stress of hoping he wouldn't die from the placental haemmorhage before they induced me. Thanks for letting me share!

    Hi Nat11, what a cutie you have there, all snuggled up next to your breast.

    Looking at prem pics always 'takes me back.'

    Seeing your bub's cpap pic reminds me of when I first saw Blake, hours after the birth. Not because he was ill, but due to my hyper vomitting for hours till it subsided and I could finally go up to the NICU. This is what he looked like:

    IMG20110705_003 (1024x768).jpg

    It was NOT a good look for him! He was a diff boy when it came off, so relaxed.

    IMG20110705_010 (1024x768).jpg

    He was (and still is, of course) a little sweetie. My pg treatment midwife actually punched me in the arm when she first saw him and said, "how CUTE is your baby!" Everyone fell in love with him fast.

    IMG20110719_006 (1024x768).jpg

    Here he is now, at 16mo, still a rock star!

    23633000 001 (2) (683x1024).jpg

    He started out happy, and for the most part, is an 'easy baby.' No stress, lots of smiles. Boy, am I lucky!

    Anyone else got a 'love my premmie's poster-good-looks' pic for us?

    Wow, GM ~ your little girl is THRIVING! You would never know she was so tiny...super, tiny micro darling bubba. She reminds me so much of my friend's little girl, one of the mums from my natal group.

    Nat11 ~ how old is your boy now? He obviously loves his mumma. What a cutie. He looks about the same age as Blakey.

    Thanks for the piccies. Anyone else in a share-a-prem-pic mood?

    MissKitty ~ what a cheeky smile (above). The change in all these little ones is amazing.

    Nat11 ~ sorry to hear you may be going through it all again. At least it's the devil you know, if you know what I mean. Hang in there and stay positive ~ you never know, bubs and your bod may get further than you think. Please PM me if you wish to share or just need a chat or listening ear. Would like to hear your story and the reasons why it may happen again this time. Best of strength to you, M.
